Aset Magomadova faces new murder trial for strangling daughter
Calgary woman's lawyer had won a stay of proceedings because she has cancer
Alberta's highest court says Aset Magomadova must again stand trial for strangling her teenaged daughter.
In a judgment released Thursday, Alberta's Court of Appeal decided a lower court judge erred in saying Magomadova was too ill to face a new trial for murder.
The Calgary woman was convicted in 2010 of manslaughter for killing her troubled daughter in 2007.
She received a suspended sentence and was put on probation.
That decision was appealed and another trial was ordered on the charge of second-degree murder.
But Magomadova has cervical cancer and her lawyer successfully argued in 2013 for a stay of proceedings, convincing the court she was too ill to go to trial again.
That stay has now been lifted.
No new trial date has been set.
